    Judge rejects couple's argument for refusing gay customers
    I understand it is state law not to discriminate. HOWEVER
    The people MUST go somewhere and video something they dont want to video. Does that not freak you out?
    They MUST use their equipment, drive somewhere and video something THEY DONT WANT TO DO.
    I love this part of the article
    "Tolerance is a two-way street,"
    Too bad people are so intolerant. That goes for the videographers, the legislators and the people wanting them to go against their will.
    Public accommodation laws are institutional discrimination. Crazy how people fight for people to be able to marry or whatever and call the govt tyrannical and bigoted, but will support their own form of discrimination.
    "as long as its what i believe"
    Pathetic

    This case will be made moot by the one currently before the Supreme Court.

    Hahahaha. Mummmm ha.

    Many states have passed anti-homosexual discrimination laws.

    There is no constitutional basis for overturning such laws enacted by the various states.

    IMO, it should be added to the federal civil rights laws too.

    The 13th Amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude. So far as I know, it is still in effect.

    I've never understood this concept. I heard some one point out that there is a designer who refused to design a dress for trump's wife. Perhaps they should take her to court. Sadly being gay seems to be protected while being Christian is not. We are busy building a tiered citizenship. To me the bottom line is no one is entitled to my services.

    Laws can't trump Free Exercise.

    It has to be taken into account, despite your desire that it shouldn't.

    So this suit is all pretty much hypothetical, over whether the videographers can include on their website the helpful information that they will not video gay couples' weddings. I can see both sides here. Putting up a clear statement that you are going to discriminate is going to get you in a shitload of trouble with the law, but it is helpful for potential customers.
    When some of those discriminatory laws in NC were adopted, businesses that welcomed gay couples started putting up signs saying "ALL are welcome here." Maybe if more businesses that have no problem with gays were to do that--all of them--like the ubiquitous signs everywhere that say "We Accept VISA," customers would know who to choose and perhaps those who are not ready to accept gay marriage could be given some more time.
    I hate discrimination personally, but not everyone objecting to this is a hateful bigot. They need more time to accept an unprecedented change in thinking about homosexuality in the past forty years. It happened so fast people's thinking couldn't keep up. Forcing it is like putting my cat in the carrier. The more you force it, the more she fights. Can a solution somewhere near the middle be found?
